Thread subject: Dennis Feeding The Chicks
||05/27/05 02:19 pm
||I have just seen Dennis feeding the chicks. The male feeding the chicks was thought to be rarer than "osprey teeth".
The only two examples I have ever heard of was the legendary Ollie when he was left as a single parent And I think NoRing at Lake District last year (need to check that one).
But of course I now remember it was not Noring. It was Henry at Loch Garten.

||I was watching too and didn't realize it was him until Betty moved into clean up a loose piece. WTG!

||I said that he was a bit of a nest husband. Wonder if he is getting all those fish from the supermarket! :)

||Actually, Last years Dennis fed the chicks on occasion. Its not that uncommon.

||Well it was thought to be very uncommon but as always conventional wisdom changes. Now that we have seen it more often I guess "conventional wisdom" will have to change.
One of my basic teaching axioms is that everything is "best current opinion"......it could all change tomorrow and mostly does!
